. my biggest concern was law enforcement but in law enforcement is the same thing. they are incredibly well trained and intelligent and good at their jobs so you better have an explanation for everything. the day i got pulled over they asked me you have been arrested, i have never been arrested in my life which is true but they searched the car and found drugs and i was a product of the system. it was irrelevant that the search was illegal. the drugs were in the car. they got the drugs off of the street but that has not been an effective strategy when you start looking at the drug war. >> so you are busted. some time later you have -- there's another legal issue that comes up. your back is against eyewall and that is when you get the knock on the door. you walk out and somebody says these are law enforcement people out here. i was arrested. >> i was arrested and scared straight. i decided i would rather be poor and free than half a little bit of money and not able to sleep at night. soaker two years i was on probation. i paid an attorney to $32,000 to get me off the hook and that is so
the existing law and involved in the in that examinations of the impediments to affect the resolution and we are working on a cooperative basis to overcome those. so in conclusion, dodd-frank is certainly given the significant new responsibilities to address these risks associated in the recent financial crisis. you take these responsibilities seriously and we are ready to use these authorities when they are needed. hopefully not. but while the key provisions are now in place, we are continuing to implement the remaining provisions in rulemaking and we continue to refine our thinking on the process we increase transparency in the rest of the market's on these powerful new tools and how they can best be used to maintain financial stability and end to big to fail. i look forward to participating in the q&a. thank you very much. [applause] >> now for the downside. first i want to thank you professor bachmann for organizing this. it's an excellent panel i must say and i've always enjoyed being on the panel with space and rick. laughter come i want to take on everything that was said, so let me g
delegation, six democrats. pennsylvania law speak to the apportioning process. the republican-controlled legislature essentially redrew the congressional boundary lines, moving some seats that were vulnerable in the eastern part of the state, three of them in at the philadelphia suburbs, one of them, one of them in the lehigh valley and one of them up in scranton. basically running the west and south to try to pick up more republicans without getting into the details of it -- karen lives in one of those areas where the boundary lines were redrawn. i do not know which congressman -- that might be in the 15th, with charlie dent. that was the lehigh valley seat. then out comes down to south central pennsylvania. or she could be in a seat held by a republican, lou barletta. that district was redrawn -- that district now comes the whole way down to the state capital, picking up more republicans. here is a way to think about that at the moment -- in competitive terms. nobody believes, independent analysts, nobody believes that of the 18 congressional seats, that more than two of the

beloved cousin and in law. prayers as you move through this season of sorrow. and of grief. thank you for sharing george breathes with you. profoundly george stanley mcgovern as a son an example of our heritage, i each of you for coming celebrate and honor senator mcgovern's life and witness. to share the mcgovern family's brief. to political colleague, a trusted mentor -- [no audio] and prairie form them to embrace common person and to tirelessly worked for the common good. george mcgovern was also a prairie prophet. he called and inspired an generation to do justice, to love mercy and to walk with our god. he focused the world's on the plight of the hungry. fought for peace. he called on us to repent a misguided, wasteful, and selfish to seeking and speaking the truth. articulate it in his hometown to and not in nazareth to preach the good news to the poor, to be prisoners, to give sight to the blind and to proclaim the year of the lord's savior. we can learn much from jesus' experience in bringing good to the poor and liberating the oppressed. of teaching and preaching in galilee.
many states that were trying to do a voter suppression with the idea laws, now we have won the most of that. now we have to be careful that the accurate count is given. everybody in the campaign has to be ready for recounting. if it goes to the supreme court, but we have to go there. host: are you still there? caller: it must be fair. host: from our twitter page -- steve is joining us from virginia on the republican line. caller: there is no such thing as a voter suppression, that is just silly. there is a voter fraud as was revealed by james keene where he recorded the son of jim moran telling somebody how to commit of voter fraud. there are lots of dead people that are registered. that was the purpose of this to get the dead people off of the voter rolls. the process is going forward in virginia. everybody who registers in virginia gets a voter i.d.. it is a responsibility. a lot of people did not want to have anything to do with responsibility. host: thank you for the call. eight romney ryan white house, it could happen. -- a romney-biden white house, it could happen. the magic n
forward with regulations that are inconsistent with the underlying law, and advisory opinions that are inconsistent, and implementations that is inconsistent with what congress intended and with what the law is. the work requirements for welfare cross it was very clear. i was a lead sponsor of the bill and there was no waiver capability for the report -- the work requirement, and he did it. immigration and others -- you have a bunch of issues. and what that does is create uncertainty. if the government can go and do what they want regardless of what the lot is -- what the law expert, and the government says coppola -- what the lot is, and the government says, and going to do it and go ahead and sue me. that is as much of the problem as the volume we have seen. the cost of the regulation is inconsistent with the underlying law that was passed by congress, or never even contemplated by congress. co2 is a toxic substance. i cannot imagine anyone who voted for the clean air act who would have suggested that was something that was covered under the definition when they passed that
, and we need to think about the risks they may post to other people. and lastly under current law before turn to part about health reform, i just would be remiss if i didn't point out in terms of access that there are some eligibility gaps in the snap. now be for some legal immigrants and unemployed childless adults who face a three-month time in a three month time limit has been suspended in most parts of the country during the recession. but basically if you don't have shown and you're between 18-29 you can only get food stamps, snap for three months. over a three-year period. if you're not working. and so that time limit will be coming back in the coming years and is really a serious weakness in the program. and we can talk, if people want to comment about what some of the other changes that are legislative the under consideration in coming, in congress right now. if folks want to go there but i'm going to skip that. most of what i want to talk about, looking forward to the next few years, what is the future of the snap access, and we were think as i said, about packaging step with ot
party, the republican party is not a choice on the ballot. with the voter i.d. law, all they want to do is disenfranchise the voter. okay? the republican party but the libertarian party through hell, to be honest with you. just to get 1% of the boat off the ballot. -- of the vote off. the libertarian party never got more than 1% of the votes nationally and i think it's ridiculous. i have volunteered for the libertarian party. they were arguing over signatures. what a waste of time and taxpayers' money because that had to all go in to the courts. host: terry madonna, third parties and the pennsylvania ballot. guest: gary johnson will be on the ballot house will -- as will jill stein of the green party. pennsylvania can write someone in. we will essentially have four two choices. host: the headline this morning from "the philadelphia inquirer ." joining us is the politics writer from "the enquirer." thank you for being with us. share with us these polling numbers. how many did you survey and what are the results? caller: it was a survey of 600 likely voters all last week, tuesday through
, corporations, unions, other associations, not permitted to make contributions. that has been the law for more than 40 years. they are allowed to spend their own money independently of the campaign if they want to put cannot make such a patient. typically, presidential candidates raise money at the maximum level, they are well known nationally, lots of wealthy individuals and groups that want to support them. the obama campaign stands out in that respect of it. it is also importantthan 40 yea. they are allowed to spend their own to note, the caller is making another race has been more focused in many respects on a small number of individual people. these people have contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the process. i think the number that get you into a majority of the money, about 60% of the outside money, has been raised from about 200 individuals. the number of people you could fit on an airplane have respecta small number of individual people. these people have contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the process. i think the number that get you into a majority of the money
but not for president. federal law has said you must choose your electors on the first monday after the first tuesday of november. this year, november 6. so the state of new jersey, where we live, for example, could delay congressional elections by a month because they felt candidates could not campaign because of the hurricane but it could not delay the presidential election since that is the date set by congress. so, we have to hold it on that date or hold a substitute for it, like a vote if the legislature on that date. >>neil: what is the likely hood that 20 states, says were affected by the storm in one way, shape or form, not that the entire state is affected by power outages and it is mostly in new jersey or connecticut or the other states is there anything the federal government can do to say, all right, to be fair, we pushed this back a week, that would be unprecedented? >>judge napolitano: it would. it would be impossible because it would require the congress, everyone in the house of representatives up to re-election, a third of the senate is up, and the president will resume campaigning,
in the hostilities and therefore to kill them would be a war crime under international law, under the geneva convention. noncombatants who are summarily executed, that constitutes a war crime. it went on to say the u.n. human rights council is gathering evidence of violations carried out by both sides in syria and building a case. it seems this video, too, will be part of the evidence, if that case comes up before the international criminal court. >> if it does take it further, what does that mean? what would achieve? >> we see people from the former warsaw in yugoslavia in the international criminal court at the hague now. people are tried. the people who are subject to those violations, the victims and victims' families are allowed to say what happened to them. very severe prison sentences are handed out. at the moment we are seeing one of the purposes of the international criminal court is not just to provide justice but to show future possible violators that the there is snow impunity. this is exactly what the u.n. is threatening this morning. if you commit a violation such as what appea
pensions for one job our investigation so outraged politicians in springfield that they passed a law to stop it. they go on leave from the city and then base their pensions on their much higher union salary that pension reform had rare bipartisan support the teachers' union and other union leaders now say the law went too far. jesse sharkey is the no. 2 guy with the chicago teachers union. what's wrong with it is a couple of things, number one he points to this library assistant whose pension could be cut by more than half under the new law when she took a leave of absence from the city to work for the union her salary doubled she then not only got her city pension but a second retirement deal for reunion work. house minority leader tom cross sponsored the bill to stop what the library assistant and dozens of other union workers had been doing. she is still going to have a pension that she is entitled to as the library at she's just not getting that second pension working for the teachers' union. this begs the question if they build and received bipartisan support makes a very small
law obeyed in the second they saw was a rental car and a young kid, they pulled me over right away. he was the first time that a group the pattern that they looked for. and now of course they look for anything because the drug trade has become so profitable and lucrative. it's a $30 billion trade that anyone using anything, grandparents using rvs come to people in there as fishing boats and they go to the lake, doing anything because profits are enormous. so the cops are aware to look for that now. >> hipolito, how about your mexican background in relation to being able to infiltrate these groups? >> it was extremely important and yet i have to understand is that as soon as kind of thing that my spanish might not have been what it was from someone in mexico or central america when i was working on the cartels. the thing that it was brought out is the criminal element is not limited to hispanic american, but i was able to use my background again where i grew up, and seen some of the things that i grew up, so i was able to capitalize on my background, infiltrating. but what is important,
democrat voted against and did not become law and the government did not shut down. >> moderator: gentlemen let me jump ahead to a topic i was thinking about taking up a little later but since it's on the table congressman's dold your opponent says that on the 20 most important votes he did not break with your leaders even want once and not let the tea party to pull congress to the friends. what is your response to that? dold: my response is that was 24 votes if "the washington post" is correct. 24 this was passed with the majority and 10 of those votes danny hoyer voted with but do you know what's interesting about those votes? not a single vote talks about health care or the environment and not a single vote talks about transportation infrastructure. not a single one of those votes were dealing with education or a single one on gun control. all things that i think are important to people in the tenth district and i think are critical votes get my opponent doesn't want to talk about it. schneider: if you look at the
father-in-law died inherited three slaves. the first lady's great great grandmother and she ended up in a rough rural community in georgia, the vast majority of people were not slave voters, white men worked the fields along the slaves they own if they owned annie and it was quite a different experience than the one we often think about. >> it was quite a different experience and i really enjoyed reading about the people of that day, how she worked the fields and the men who owned her worked the fields. i know that you were not able to determine the relationship between millvinia and the men who owned her. and i also know, code of silence. she never talked about it and her descendants never talked about it. i noticed the same thing in her own family and other families as well. it is about wilkerson who wrote about the great migration, the same code of silence in her family. what is up with that code of silence? >> this is a painful chapter of american history for many families. so i think at the time, people knew. it would have been very clear to people. the people i met and intervie
by the military in war zones and are controversial. but they are also increasingly used by law enforcement here at home. we have a demonstration here from the east bay. >> reporter: by definition is it a drone? about louis lit. it is like -- absolutely. it is likely you will see more drones like this over active crime scenes. >> search and rescue missions, etc. >> reporter: a gunman in vallejo who killed an officer could have had this equipment helping. >> it would have been a lot better to deploy one of these unmanned aerial systems and see where the man was hide that way. >> they can cost up to $1,500 an hour for powered aircraft. >> reporter: that seem to be big money and part of orthopedics urban shield. the drone comes quipped with high technology accessories like nice vision, high-tech cameras and they even see heat. >> they can save people in the middle of the night. >> reporter: once considered an expensive toy is seriously considered as a cleaner, safer, and less expensive way to save lives. report from dublin, cbs 5. >>> why are schools always on the chopping block when it come to
rate of any country in the world. 2.3 million people. half of what we spend on law enforcement, the court and the prisons is drug related, and to what end. look, this is not about advocating drug use. 50% of kids graduating from high school have smoked marijuana. that's an issue that belongs with families, not in the criminal justice system. [applause] >> anybody have any rebuttal? >> i have to make my statements first, and then my rebuttal. so as a medical doctor previously in clinical practice for about 25 years, i can say with a real understanding of the science of the health impact, that marijuana is it a substance that is dangerous because it's illegal. it is not illegal on account of being dangerous. because it's not dangerous at all. [applause] it is well known that the impacts of marijuana are dangerous because of the illegal drug trade from marijuana drug prohibition. so the most important thing we can do to get rid of the health problems associated with marijuana is to legalize it. and on day one, on day one a president, if she wanted to, could entrust the d.e.a. to o
't the states for the states run goods and services. regulatory laws governing the market shall be constrained by applicable sections of the constitution as amended. congress has six years from the date of ramification to adjust the current law and eliminate federal organizations and payment to the steve organizations to support or provide marketable goods and services. >> moderator: thank you. mr. macgovern? macgovern: i wouldn't support the bailout of government failed businesses. i believe and as i've said many times, free-market and free - a credit more wealth, more prosperity for more people than any other system coming and you have to be free to succeed, but you also have to be free to fail. orderly bankruptcy would have occurred part another company never took a nickel and survived and that is the way that i would have proceeded on that point. the government doesn't have any money. we are sending our children and grandchildren is money, so let the free market work. >> moderator: mr. moss? moss: the free market did really well. after the second world war when the united states was a grow
're a nation of law, we'll obey the law. i think romney will win 53% 47%. very unlikely that he can win popular vote and not carry the electoral vote. carville has a rule, incumbents get the last poll. ohio, obama would lose 51%, 49%. you go around the country. lots of states obama is at 48%, 49% and james carville always said, you never get if you're the incumbent, you never get a break. >> let's look at the closing arguments from president obama. he was in new hampshire yesterday taking aim at romney's record in massachusetts. >> once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that overwhelming benefited 278 of the wealthiest families in the state, and then he raised taxes and fees on middle-class families. to the tune of $750 million. does that sound familiar to you? >> his argument of course exactly what governor romney is going to do if he's president. >> wait a second, the fact is barack obama would trade job creation of romney as governor in a hartley beat. he would trade of massachusetts under romney in a heartbeat. romney worked with a democratic legislation la sure. you look at romne
early and take advantage of early voting. especially in those states where those voter i.d. laws could be a sticking point. they want to give those people a chance in case there is a snag, a hiccup, they can still have time to get to the polls november 6th. >> and in case they don't know, 6 and 7, we're talking about same-sex marriage and we're talking about expanding gambling in prince george's county. >> yeah, two big, big contentious issues. two issues that both sides, the fors and against, have spent a ton of money, a ton of money, record-setting amounts of money, manpower, and so on. and so these issues really are driving people. people want to take their time in the booths. and so that's contributing to the long line as well as just the turnout. >> a lot to get through on those ballots. how about the district? what's going on in d.c.? because we're seeing long lines here too. >> yeah, you have the council chair up for grabs and you have the at-large seats. and so people really want to make a conscientious choice. we did have some listeners to call in and complain. because once th
. this is sears. . roker cops above the law these allegations were filed by a bunch of cover up officers. you say there were constantly harassed they should leave their jobs because their career in law enforcement was over, they claimed it was in retaliation. >> a couple of veteran undercover officers who claimed they did their jobs all too well and paid the price now they are suing clamming ongoing harassment from their fellow cops in supervisors widespread abuse of police power. we death threats from people of the highest level of the chicago police department. it's truly a despicable case their lawsuit names the city all the way up to the level of deputy chief the claim that while working undercover investigating allegations of corruption against other cops they founded, police directly involved in a drug train being paid to look the other way like in the well-publicized mahomet case a veteran tactical officer who admitted shaking down drug dealers for cash some of them it turned out were working for the fbi police officer say when they did their job uncovering cops turned criminals they were
contributions. that's been the law for more than 40 years and it still is. they're about to spend their own money independently of the campaign if they want to but they can't make contributions. presidential candidates raise money at the national level. -- a maximum levels. there are a loft of wealthy individuals who support them. so the obama campaign stands out in that respect a little bit. the caller is making another point which is that the money in this race this year has been much more focused in many respects on a small number of individual people. the attention in this spending is focused on a small number of people who have contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to the process. i think the number that gets you to a majority of the money -- about 60% of the outside money has been raced from about 200 individuals. so the number of people you could fit on an airplane have been an important group in funding these outside efforts this year. and that's different and i think we need to watch to see whether those financial resources can become more important in elections. that's a que
the law, because there are laws on the books that prevent these things from taking some shapes. but we've seen in europe, asia and other parts of the world really interesting ways of inventing the process of partnering that don't involve giving away public assets and public goods. nobody's talking about that. >> i think the other thing, and i talked about this earlier, i think some structural changes need to be made to how government functions. right now there is, there are very, very, very few cities who have any type of an entity that's tasked with looking out and across. and the way cities are set up now, the way agencies are set up now, the way the budgets are allocated, they do not foster innovation. you can go to pretty much any agency in any city in this country, okay, and their planning budget, their project plan has been set up for the next three to five years. it doesn't foster innovation. and so having, creating an entity that is empowered, okay, to find innovation, to drive innovation across these agencies that has a budge is one -- budget is one of the steps to get there.
priority in law enforcement. no one knows more about this than barry landau, a self- described presidential historian and one of the foremost collectors of presidential memorabilia. that's because barry landau carried out the largest theft of these treasures in american history. prosecutors say he is one of the most accomplished con men they have ever encountered. for decades, he was a regular guest at the white house. here he is with president ford and queen elizabeth. he's the guy with the beard. >> president ronald reagan: well... ( laughter ) >> simon: he showed up with president reagan and nancy at the inaugural gala in 1985, and met a whole bunch of presidents- - richard nixon, george h.w. bush, bill clinton. he wrote an impressive, picture- laden book, "the president's table." and was invited to the finest anchor desks in town. >> barry h. landau is presidential historian... >> the story of the ultimate inauguration collector... >> simon: but when we met up with him in june, he no longer wanted to tell his story. he'd been convicted of the single largest theft of historic artifacts i

that obama's law, this is the not speculation, this is not regulation, the law says you have to do this or you get whacked with $600 to $2400 tax which will grow over time and penalties and interest if you're a little bit late, in order to avoid this tax, you have to fill out a form and send it into the irs. in the form, what's your health i.d. number, and imagine, we just took the straight questions that the laws says and wrote them down in an irs form, and it's a little over a page, but in point of fact the government is probably going to ask for even more than we did. and obamacare tax form.com, you can take a look at what the form will look like and the questions that you're going to have to answer minimum. >> i really want to straighten this out. i'm not sure i understand. according to the terms of the law, as now written for obamacare, you have to tell the irs your health insurance i.d. number. do you have to, and this is just on one tax form, the 1044 in april or a separate form you've got to sign it once every month? how does it-- tell me the timing of this? >> you're goin
? peter: no not at this point because federal law sets the date for the election and only congress can change it and i don't think congress will have time to change it between now and next tuesday. but the law gives states leeway in setting additional election days for president in case of emergencies like hurricanes or acts of terrorism. the law say ifs a state fails -- if a state fails to deliver its electoral votes for president on time, quote the electors may be appointed on a subsequent day in such a manner as the legislature of state may direct. it turns out 7 states have actually passed laws that appear to address this. three of them have been hit by hurricane sandy, new york, maryland and north carolina. new york has been hit the hardest and it matters a lot to president obama who is beating romney in the polls. it ties florida for the third most electoral votes, 29. new york can establish an additional day for elections within 20 days of november 6th. if there's an emergency. it's already warned voters that polling sites may change because of the storm. we have asked the state
